[ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, the 8g band right there. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how we doing, 8g band? great to see you guys. everybody, he's back tonight on drums, the great jimmy chamberlin is with us this week, from the smashing pumpkins. [ cheers and applause ] jimmy, thank you so much for being back with us. >> great to be ere. >>be seth: it is an honor to have you. we make a lot of jokes abo the fact that donald trump is leading in the polls. obviously if you've been reading the papers or watching the news you're seeing this.
i think some people are starting to be concerned because they keep waiting for this drop in the polls. they keep sayind, "oh, once he says this he'll drop." and he's very -- staying very high. but here's the thing, you don't have to worry because it's very different telling someone you're gonna vote for donald trump and voting for donald trump. [ light laughter ] a lot of people answer their phones, they say, "who are you going to vote for, for president?" people are just angry in general. they're just angry at politics as usual. so they say, "i'm gonna vote for donald trump!" and then they hang up. [ laughter ] and that just counts in the polls. that now counts in the polls. but saying that on the phone is a lot like when you go drinking and you go -- [ slurring speech ] "i'm gonna -- on monday, i'm gonna tell my boss i quit!" and then you come in -- [ laughter ] you come in on monday, and your boss says, "how was your weekend?" you go, "oh, fine, mr. peterson." [ laughter ] that's all that happens. and that's what's gonna happen when it comes time to vote in the primaries. people are gonna be standing outside the voting booth and say, "i'm voting for donald trump because -- politics as usual i'm tired of it!" and then you'll go in, and as soon as you close the curtain you're just gonna sober up -- and be like, "oh, my god what was i talking about? that's crazy. oh -- jeb bush, i can't believe i almost did that.
[ laughter ] that's nuts." and then you'll walk back out and close the curtain and you'll tell everybody, "i voted for donald trump!" 'cause none of that matters. [ laughter ] but i'm just saying, it's fine. he's not going to win anything. it's fine. you don't have to listen to the polls. 'cause that's just the liquor talking. [ laughter ] you guys, we have a great show for you tonight. from the new film, "we are your friends," zac efron is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] one of my favorite dudes. i'm looking forward to talking to zac. also, he is a comedian, he is an "snl" legend, joe piscopo is joining us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] i got to hang out with joe at the "snl" 40th, and .'m very much looking forward to talking to him about that. and also we have music from a great country singer this evening, chrl is stapleton is with us. [ cheers and a: lause ] looking forward to that as well. now, before we move on. are you guys familiar with these domog-shaming websites? [ light laughter ] if you're not familiar, here's
how this works. people take a picture of their dog looking guilty next to a little sign that says what the dog did. like, here is an example, "i like to hide tennis balls around the house." [ light laughter ] you know, pretty cute, right? here's another one, "i eat my daddy's wooden furniture." [ light laughter ] all right, adorable but these are all minor offenses. after searching around the internet we found some websites featuring dogs that have done much, much worse things. we'd like to show them to you now in a segment we call, "extreme dog shaming." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: all right, let's look at our first dog. [ audience awa ] aw, he looks pretty cute. i can't imagine he would do an ything too bad. "i stand and text at the top of the subway stairs." [ laughter ] bad dog. bad -- just stand on -- move out of the -- ugh. [ light laughter ] who do we have next? [ audience aws ] oh, i like this guy. "i try bathing suits on at the underwear." [ laughter ] bad dog -- gross dog. bad dog! [ laughter ]
who do we have next? [ audience aws ] oh, he couldn't have done anything too bad. "i told the synagogue the casserole i brought was beef sausage, but it was pork." [ audience ohs ] [ laughter and applause ] what do you even get out of that? bad dog. [ light laughter ] who do we have next? oh! he's a cute little fellow. what could he have done? "i had a destination wedding and got divorced six weeks later." bad dog! [ laughter and applause ] and i want that blender back! who's next? could they make them any cuter than this, folks? "i screamed 'yes,' when i got my dad's camaro at the reading of his will." [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] i mean, bad dog. who's the next pooch taking the walk of extreme shame? [ audience aws ] oh, this guy's a little puff-ball. "i'm trump's hair." [ laughter and applause ] i knew. i knew he looked familiar the
minute i saw him. who do we have next? aww, this looks like a good little fellow. "i don't reciprocate oral sex." [ audience groans ] [ laughter ] bad dog. been there -- but, bad dog. [ ght laughter ] oh, i almost forgot, it's time for the twitter question of e week. donald trump i really taking the political world by storm and his last name "trump" is the root word for trumpet which is a brass instrument. so the twitter question of the week is, "is the brass section your favorite section of a symphony orchestra?" it if it is, tweet the word "yes" to @latenightseth and @barackobama. [ laughter ] now, if the brass section isn't your favorite section of an orchestra, and you prefer woodwinds or strings, tweet the word, "no" to @leancuisine. [ laughter ] back to dog-shaming. [ laughter ] oh, this is a good guy! "i didn't tell my grandson the truth about santa claus." [ audience aws ] oh, that's actually kind of nice. oh, wait there's more.
"i told him he was dead." [ audience ohs ] [ light laughter ] bad dog. i mean -- who do we have next? aww, i like him. "rugs aren't the only thing i refer to as oriental." wow! [ audience ohs ] [ laughter and applause ] wow, that's right. groan, then clap. groan, then clap. send mixed messages to my writers. i'll say they groaned, and they'll say, "but they clapped." [ laughter ] who's next? oh, wait a minute, everybody. this is my dog, frisbee. frisbee, what did you do? "my favorite 'late night' hosts do their monologues standing up." you son of a -- [ laughter and applause ] that was extreme dog shaming. we'll be right back with more "late night." [ cheers and applause ]

with my moderate to severe ulcerative colitis, the possibility of a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like
symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. only pull ' n' peel let' s you pull it, peel it, play it. fun never tasted so good with chewy, fruity pull ' n' peel candy from twizzlers. they lived. they lived. they lived.
"17 again," and "hairspray." beginning august 28th, you can see him in the new movie, "we are your friends." let's take a look. >> what do you think of this guy? >> this guy? >> yeah. >> i think he's getting paid too much. what do you think about him? >> i think he used to be good. now i think he just gives the people what they want. hey, df you want to come sit at my friend's table? we can drink for free. >> you promote here? >> my friends promote here. >> right. >> i kind of help. >> well, have a nice night. >> seth: please welcome zac efron.
[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: always a pleasure to see you. >> good to see you too, brother. how you been? >> seth: you look great. i've been good. it's always good to run into you. we ran into each other at one of the great all time bump-ins ever. >> yes. the most random place in the world. >> seth: we -- i was on my honeymoon in peru. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: and i bumped into you and your dad. [ laughter ] >> yeah. it was actually, the way i remember it, was really funny. so i was with my dad and we in these like remote ruins in cusco -- >> seth: nobody else around. >> no one around for -- and there's just -- literally there's just -- >> seth: it was the two of us and a guide. and the two of you and a guide. and right we're passing each other. >> in ruins. like, indiana jones style. >> seth: yes. >> and immediately, i recognized you from 50 feet away. you had your ball cap still kind of down and you're like in hide mode. and i was like, "seth!" and you, i see you make the face like --
[ laughter ] and then you like, slowly like nudge, like -- [ whispers ] "let's go. let's get out of here." and i go, "what?" and my dad goes, "leave him alone, zac. clearly he's trying to have a romantic time." but i'm like, "no, it's seth. hey seth." and you go, "let's get out of here." [ laughter ] and so i ran up to you and was like, "seth, seth." and you finally went, "god, he's persistent." and you turn around, "what the -- what are you -- what are you doing here?" >> seth: it was insane. >> how are you possibly, of all places to see you again. >> seth: and here we are. this is the two of us rocking it in a peruvian -- there we go. [ cheers and applause ] couple of cool dudes. see, the burn -- the real burn was on me, though, because by were staying at the same hotel. and it was like a sea of peruvian girls waiting outside the hotel. not for me. [ laughter ] and i remember my wife -- the guide said, "yeah, they are very excited. zac efron is here and they're
huge fans." as a joke, i said to my wife, "i guess they don't get 'snl' in peru." and he said, "oh, no we get it." [ laughter ] but you had -- >> no, it was a sea -- i don't know. we were in the hotel for one night. 'cause we were on this gnarly backpacking trip for like eight days. but we were there for one night and i guess somehow it got out we were at the hotel. >> seth: yeah, i apologize. i went right to my blog after i saw you. [ laughter ] >> i thought it was you. i thought it was you. and so my dad and i, we snuck out of the hotel to try and get dinner somewhere. and we walked like -- we kind of like speed walked six blocks to this little restaurant that we looked up. and one of the girls found out that we were there i guess, apparently. and accused her to deform which turned into a crowd, which turned into that same group that was outside that hotel. so my dad and i decide, well it's six blocks back. we can run back six blocks, right? >> seth: yeah, right. >> who's gonna beat us at six blocks and running. my dad is in great shape. so we go, and we start -- we just turn right and just gun it.
and it was literally the longest six blocks of my life. [ laughter ] because at that altitude -- >> seth: that altitude was crazy. >> there is no oxygen. we were like, in high mountains, there's no air to breathe. >> seth: right. >> so six blocks turned into absolute death. >> seth: by the time -- >> like, literally by the second block i thought i was going to pass out. my dad was 15 feet behind me and looked like he was going to get overcome by the girls. [ laughter ] >> seth: by the time you got back to the hotel, the girls had already beaten you back and were screaming again. >> they were so fast. >> seth: yeah. >> it's like, how are you doing this? what's going on? they were pre-fontaine girls. >> seth: it was so cool. i thought it was so cool that you were on that trip with your dad. 'cause i was like, what a cool trip it was to take with your dad. and i remember going back to the hotel and i was saying -- and it was our honeymoon, we got married a week earlier. and i was thinking, that's so cool. he gets to come on a trip like this with his dad. and she was like, "you're here with me. stop talking about how this would be the best dad trip ever. this is our honeymoon." [ laughter ] and i'm like, "yeah, i mean it's great and everything and i love you, but man, with my dad." [ laughter ] >> pretty cool stuff. >> seth: it was a great spot. we --the first time we met each other it was at "snl."
which was very exciting. you were a fantastic host. and i remember one of the first things we talked about was how you wanted to make fun of "high school musical," which was a blast. >> yeah. >> seth: you did, right? >> well, i don't think i said it like that. >> seth: yeah, no. i think -- 'cause i saved the message and i have it. [ laughter ] >> we couldn't find out how to. >> seth: right. >> we didn't figure it out until the very last moment, and you wrote the script i think the day of the show, if i'm not mistaken. >> seth: pretty close, yeah. >> and we more or less improved, like the whole thing. >> seth: and it was you coming back to school, back to high school, to pretty much let everybody know that nobody sings at college. >> yes. yeah. [ laughter ] it was like a send-off. >> seth: yeah. >> to some degree, to like, guys there's no singing in the real world. only here at this school does singing exist. [ laughter ] so be prepared for real life issues. [ laughter ] like it's serious out there. >> seth: it was a very dramatic turn by you. i still remember it being very moving. i want to congratulate you. i was saying this backstage. "neighbors" was such a fantastic
film. >> thanks, man. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i'm so excited you're doing a another one. you start very soon. >> yeah, super stoked. we start in like a week. it's crazy. >> seth: and you also just finished a movie with robert de niro. >> yes. >> seth: and one of my favorite moments in "neighbors" is you and dave franco doing de niro impressions. so my question is, when you then work with de niro, do ask him if he saw that? >> that's the tough thing. any -- it's hard it ask him questions. [ laughter ] in general. like, what am i supposed to do, like walk up to de niro and say, dude have you seen one of my films? [ laughter ] like how do you ask that question to robert de niro. he is like a legend. like, i was afraid to tell him i had seen all of his films. >> seth: right. and he's not coming up to you being like, "you seen 'taxi driver?' very good." >> yeah, exactly. [ laughter ] like, it was just so taboo. i think it might of felt wrong. but i think i overheard somebody -- somebody brought it up at lunch one time. "oh you know what, in 'neighbors,' zac did a slight
impression of you." he goes, "oh, yeah, i saw that. [ laughter ] i saw that." and i was like, "no way. [ laughter ] that's awesome." >> seth: very, very high praise from de niro. i saw that's like two thumbs up. >> yeah, i think that's pretty good. that's what i mean. >> seth: do you want to stick around? i want to talk about your new movie. >> i'll stick around. >> seth: all right, we'll be right back with more from zac efron.

[ laughter ] >> his real name's jason stewart. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> but -- i'm dr. dem jeans, i'd love to go over your mri. [ light laughter ] >> but no, i picked it up pretty quick. and by, i'd say half way through the film, i could transition songs, i could add effects. i could do, like, your basic set. >> seth: now is this the last scene in the film you're performing the festival in front of a thousand actual people, right? you performed at a real festival? >> we actually -- we actually threw a real festival. >> seth: gotcha.
>> and it was free to get in, because it was too expensive to get extras. we had a pretty small budget for this film. >> seth: okay. >> so we threw a real festival. >> seth: so real deejays would perform and people would dance to that. >> yes, so, there were real deejays, like, headliners. nicky romero was there. dillon francis showed up. we had, like, some really good deejays. >> seth: and then, how would you film your scenes? >> so they would perform a set, like, a really good set and then i would have to go up and basically like, everything would stop. so, everybody is like super hyped up and it would just stop and i would say, "okay, guys, i gotta film this quick scene. sorry to interrupt. we don't quite have the songs finished. and it's kind of a weird scene but i'm dramatically -- i'm kind of sad during it so bear with me here." >> seth: that's great. [ laughter ] >> and like the song -- >> seth: it especially helps that somebody's like, "my drugs are kickin' in, what's this?" [ laughter ] >> oh, there was, like -- there was a lot of -- some of the people were just so stoked to even hear that. they were just like, woo! >> seth: right. >> but yes.
what the best part was as soon as i got up there, like, the song started and it kind of was epic and i was super nervous, but it started perfectly. and then out of nowhere the music just goes -- and all the lights go out. and we lost a generator. >> seth: oh, no. >> right as i went up there. so that kind of killed the vibe. and then it happened after that three more times. >> seth: oh my goodness. >> so it was one of the worst music festivals of all time. [ laughter ] >> seth: there you go. >> that i headlined. >> seth: well, the end product was worth it, which is great. i want to talk to you about another project that's very exciting, it was just announced,that you are gonna be in the "baywatch" film. >> yes. >> seth: you -- the rock? >> yeah. [ cheers ] >> seth: now, was "baywatch," did you have -- what's your -- are you close to "baywatch" as source material? >> i remember watching the first episode. >> seth: did you really? >> no. no, i did not. >> seth: i did. i had everybody over. >> you know, i have like vague memories of it being on tv -- >> seth: i think that it's like -- yeah, that's about what most people have is vague memories.
>> i remember pamela anderson. i can sort of see david hasselhoff. >> seth: it's not gonna be like a "game of thrones" situation, where if you guys go too far away from "baywatch" i feel like fans will be like, that didn't happen in the show! >> exactly. we wanted to keep the integrity of what -- it is like the number one show of all time. >> seth: yeah. >> ever. >> seth: internationally it's a huge show. >> yeah, internationally. >> seth: because in other countries, no one runs in slow motion. [ laughter ] so when that came over, they were like, "oh, my god. i had no idea you could even do this. i've been running full speed my whole life." [ light laughter ] >> i've been running full speed my whole life. so, i think we're finding that combo. 'cause we want to make it like badass. >> seth: good. >> and that's what dwayne wants, and he's so cool. he's like the coolest dude in the world. i'm gonna have to keep up with that guy. and yeah, i know, let's go do it. >> seth: very exciting. [ cheers and applause ] now, this is one of my favorite things. so you recently posted this on instagram. >> oh, geez really? >> seth: this is a poem your
brother wrote about you. >> oh, geez, okay, yeah. >> seth: so your brother wrote a poem about you, i guess when he like 12 years old. >> yeah, i think he was like sixth grade. >> seth: okay, sixth grade. he was a sixth grader. so you posted a poem he wrote called "a brotherly thing." >> my dad found this when he was going through like all of our old stuff. >> seth: i'm going to read "a brotherly thing" to you because i feel like there's some stuff i feel like you have to either confirm is true or not. 'cause he wrote a poem about you, which is really sweet for a sixth grader to do. >> okay. >> seth: you're how much older than your brother? >> we're four and a half years apart. >> seth: okay, gotcha. "my brother is a movie star and is only 16. he doesn't have a job yet, still he thinks he is the queen." [ laughter ] >> thank you, dylan. >> seth: "if he lost me on a show i'll bet he would not care a bit, he won't even try to look, but my mom would throw a fit." [ light laughter ] that's nice. that's like very nice about your mom. you're not coming out very well. >> i'm coming off terribly. i'm all ready queen and
irresponsible older brother. >> seth: "yes, he does have a good side that shows up once in a while. he watches my sports, which puts upon me a smile." little tortured getting a smile there. >> well, he said it very eloquently. >> seth: "i guess he isn't that bad if i think about it twice, he helps me he with my homework and always gives advice." very nice. you're getting a lot better here at the end. and remember, this is called "a brotherly thing." "if there's any hatred going on, it is a brotherly thing. if we fight, no one gets hurt. brothers have to fight, i think." it'd really lovely. >> yes, and i love you dylan. shout out to my brother, dylan. [ cheers and applause ] thank you for writing that. >> seth: at the very end there he rhymes thing with thing. >> actually, he wouldn't do that any more. he went to college and stuff. >> seth: oh, wow. so his poems got way better? >> his poems got way better. he's way cooler than me. >> seth: i would love to read his later era poems about you. >> he should redo "a brotherly thing." >> seth: exactly.
>> i bet he's gonna be like, "he still thinks he's a queen." [ laughter ] >> seth: well i think you're a queen too. thank you so much for being here, zac. it's always such a pleasure to see you.

[ applause ] was it fun getting back into playing sinatra in studio 8h? >> yeah, it was the best, man. you know, they found the wig. you know, they do -- it's so meticulous here. and i get to see everybody that -- some of the guys are still here. >> seth: yeah, the crew guys. >> yeah, and they go, "hey, joe how you doin', man?" we talk about and we hit the ground running and there's no mercy, man. you guys, the way you work it here. the way i cut my teeth on "saturday night live." it's the best in the world. and you know what i love about it the best? it's new york city, man. it's home. >> seth: absolutely, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] and you're of course a local. now, i wanna talk -- the sinatra impression, is it true that when you first started doing -- there you go. when you first started doing it, you were worried about it? >> you're a cool, cool kid, seth. let me tell ya baby. oh, knocked me out.
where are the broads? >> seth: sorry. zac -- >> there was zac. >> seth: exactly, the queen was there, but that's it. yeah. [ laughter ] so you were nervous when you first did the sinatra. just because of who sinatra was. >> well, i did it at the improvisation. 44th and 9th, you remember that. and i did a characterization of frank sinatra. so, when i went on the show they said, "joe, do that sinatra thing." and i went, "i can't." because it was out of respect, you know? >> seth: yeah. >> it was an italian/american thing. it was the hero of my father. so i never would do it. it took like three, four weeks. but when you know when you work gotta be a team player. >> seth: sure. >> so, we did the sketch. it caught on. and i finally got to meet the great frank sinatra. i met him. he was so great. he looked at me. frank sinatra said, "hey, joe baby, how are ya?" i went, "wow." i said, "can i call you frank?" he went, "no." [ laughter ] true story. it was a love affair ever since. >> seth: did you -- at the snl 40th there were so many fantastic people there. everyone from taylor swift to jack nicholson, did you get to rub elbows with anybody?
did you get to meet anybody -- >> you know, i was humbled. and it was great to see you. you're such a good guy, man. immensely talented good guy. and it was great to chat and hang and then i saw eddie. you know, it was great to see the great eddie murphy again and then jack nicholson. then i walked right down the hallway here, i looked in and there's paul mccartney was at the piano. nicholson was there. billy murray, danny aykroyd. my heroes, you know? >> seth: yeah. >> and then i'm a big bradley cooper fan, you know? >> seth: sure. who isn't? [ light laughter ] >> i'm a huge bradley -- i love bradley cooper, right? so, he's walking in and my gal goes, "oh, say hi to bradley." and i'm really shy. you don't wanna go ever and say things like that. >> seth: well it's a weird night, 'cause you don't -- everybody's trying to decide, like, how much do you bother anybody else. so, i know exactly what you mean. >> no, and bradley had the academy awards next week. what am i doing? so he's walking in with his mom. the whole paparazzi is with bradley cooper going in to and right outside the door there. so my girl goes, "no, say hi to bradley." so, i go, okay. so i go over and i swear to god. like a schmuck, i go, "uh, bradley, joe piscopo. [ laughter ]
[ applause ] i swear to god. bradley cooper looks at me, he grabs me, both arms so you understand. he puts me against the wall, right outside there, and he goes, "joe [ bleep ] piscopo!" [ laughter ] [ applause ] and i swear to god. forgive me. with his finger in my face. "i know everything you've ever done, dude." like that. i was like so -- it's humbling. >> seth: yeah, it's fantastic. that is absolutely fantastic. >> and the thing with bradley is if your girl, like, leaves with bradley you would like understand. [ laughter ] you know what i mean? >> seth: absolutely. >> i expected my girl to -- and i go, thanks. >> seth: if he at the end of snl 40 had just stood up and pointed at someone and went, "her." everybody would be like, "okay." [ laughter ] it'd be, "joe piscopo, thank you bradley. go ahead. have a good time." >> seth: now i also wanna give you props because you were great as sinatra, during the show, it was one of the greatest after parties of all time. >> oh, seth. >> seth: jimmy fallon ran the night.
he got up on stage. it was band after band performing. you got up and you sang a bruce springsteen song. you do a fantastic springsteen, which i was not aware of. and it brought the house down. >> you know, at the radio station they say, i heard you talking about it on howard so thanks for that. >> seth: oh, it was fantastic. >> no, i appreciate it, 'cause i was scared, man. and again i didn't want to push myself among these icons and great young talent like yourself. so, jimmy's on stage, and jimmy fallon, i have such immense respect and love for jimmy. >> seth: yeah, and that night was just perfect. >> the energy on stage. mccartney, taylor swift ripped it up. this was the after party at the plaza. taylor swift, i mean, you know she's a great star -- >> seth: and you're not just being shy. like, when you say i would like to do a song between taylor swift and prince. [ laughter ] i feel like between taylor swift and prince, i should do one. >> exactly what happened, man! exactly what happened. i said i'm not going up there, but i know the plaza. they would do the rawlings gold glove awards there. i know, i'm there a lot. i sneak back with all of the people in the back, right? and i'm shy to ask but i say to the director, i turned into like jerry lewis. you know, i said, "could you ask
mr. fallon if i can go on for a minute, please? would you mind? i don't wanna bother jimmy, but if you don't mind maybe just a little bit i'll go up." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] it's like, what? i'm turning into jerry lewis. so they go -- i see jimmy. he looks at me like this, just a second, brings me up doing springsteen with jimmy fallon, ripped it up. billy murray on tambourine. how cool was that? billy murray. then elvis costello. >> seth: first time i've been jealous of the tambourine. [ light laughter ] >> billy was up there, then elvis costello walks up and he looks at me and we do "pink cadillac" and it works. i love bruce, you know? so, elvis walks over to me and he looks at me like this and he goes, i swear, he goes, he looks at the fender around my neck, "i need the guitar." now i know if i give elvis costello this guitar, there is no need for me to be on that stage. >> seth: right. the tambourine's taken. [ laughter ] >> now i don't wanna leave, you know?
so i go like this, to elvis costello, "elvis, 'twist and shout.'" he goes, "yeah." and he went right to the microphone, jimmy and i singing backup. elvis costello singing "twist and shout." >> seth: it was fantastic. it was a great night. now another thing i wanna talk about, so you're era at "snl" you're there '80 to '84. >> yeah, man. >> seth: and you start with the cast -- the first cast sort of after the first cast. so you're the first turnover. and that must have been a rough time for the show. because i mean, one of the reasons is the only people who survived from that year into the next year were you and eddie. >> yeah, man. >> seth: so, what was that year like? >> it was the worst in the world. it wasn't anybody's fault. >> seth: no. >> it wasn't anybody's fault. it was more like a machine. it was lorne michael's brilliance that made -- and back in the day you couldn't match the writing of michael o'donohue. if you google these guys. brilliant writers. michael and david. alan zweibel. yourself, seth meyers. >> seth: thanks. >> no, you did all tina fey's stuff, man. >> seth: i did not. tina fey did all of tina fey's stuff. [ laughter ] every now and then i would transcribe something she said,
but that was -- >> it's the hardest thing to do to write. so, yeah. >> seth: and it was full turnover. i think that's the important thing. everybody left and they started it over and that's never happened since then. >> and we were hired by a great lady, jean doumanian. you know, lorne's gal hired us and we went in. but it was like a no-win situation. but jean hired me, hired eddie. we had to work as hard as we possibly can. but it's new york city, man. it's nothing for nothing. and we weren't doing great. and there's no mercy in new york. >> seth: no. it was an institution. >> i felt we were ruining america's favorite television show, you know? >> seth: yeah. >> we weren't being malicious about it. so we'd be walking down the street and people would go, "hey, you're the new guys, from the new 'saturday night live,' right?" we'd go, "yeah." they'd go, "you suck." [ laughter ] it was the worst. it was the worst. >> seth: but then a couple years down the line, the two stars of the show, are sort of you and eddie. what was it like coming up with a young eddie murphy? that must have been an incredible thing to be around. >> 19 years old. >> seth: yeah, that's crazy. >> murphy was like 19 years old. from long island. now we did comedy clubs in new york. and everybody knew each other. jerry was here. larry david was here. we had our little thing in
new york. then there was the long island comedy clubs. and we didn't really know each other, believe it or not. it was like another country. met eddie. soon as i met him i saw the brilliance of this young kid at 19 years old. and i tell you what, when he goes -- right before "weekend update", when we started writing sketches, he wanted to write a sketch about the nba how no white players should be able to play professional basketball. this is eddie's idea. so we're about to do "weekend update", and he's right off my shoulder. before we step on to live tv, i hear eddie whisper to himself, "the kids at roosevelt high will never believe this." you know what, he's 19 years-old. >> seth: yes. >> and it was very humbling being around a great talent like that, because here i am, you've gotta have a sense of humor. we would go out to lunch. eddie and i would get lunch, long island, takes me out to hempstead, long island. and we're sitting there, we're having lunch and one guy comes over, a fan comes over and goes, "eddie murphy, wow, man." and we're there just trying to eat and he goes to eddie, "you are the greatest, man. 'saturday night live.' you are an icon. you are brilliant. hi, joe."
[ laughter ] >> seth: it's even worse if they didn't know your name but knowing it's even worse. but i wanna say something and i mean this in all sincerity, because that was, i feel like, that '80 to '84 period was the time that the show was most at risk of being cancelled. and i feel like you and eddie were the people who kept it on the air. and everybody on the show, myself included who was on after '84 owe you a debt of gratitude. [ cheers and applause ] so thank you so much. honor to have you here. joe piscopo, everyone!
